Here we go again!

The recent wet weekend brought a repeat of the old drains problems - with stormwater surcharging the sewers and pushing raw sewage up through manholes at the lower end of the village.
Storm water pushes sewage up through the manhole at the
junction of The Rudge and the A417.  Severn Trent say they
won't be doing anything about it for at least the next 10 years,
yet they raised no objection to building another 45 houses that
will add to the problem.
The Parish Council has continually raised this problem with the relevant authorities.  It also made the strongest possible representations to Tewkesbury Borough Council against allowing more houses to add their sewage and storm water to make the problem worse.  It was all to no avail, as Tewkesbury are under such pressure from central government to give permission for extra houses.
